Abstract

Three articles were published in the 1998 volume of the British Journal of Occupational Therapy which dealt with the issue of professional boundaries and role overlap between occupational therapy and physiotherapy. There has also been some recent debate on the same topic in the USA and Canada. This paper discusses issues related to the perceived professional role overlap between occupational therapy and physiotherapy. The implications for occupational therapy are discussed and recommendations are made.
